The coat of arms of Oxford is the official heraldic arms of Oxford, used by Oxford City Council
While the bull is common in heraldry, in the arms of Oxford an ox, which is less common, is used1 The arms is canting, showing an ox fording over water The coat of arms with its crest—a blue imperial lion—and supporters was not formally granted but was recorded at the heraldic visitation on 12 August 1634234 The oldest image of the ox on the water is from a seal for Oxford from the 14th Century The water is most likely the River Thames, which runs through the city34
It is not known today what the supporters—an Elephant Ermines eared Argent tusked Or collared and lined Or and a Beaver Vert its tail barry wavy Azure and Argent ducally gorged and lined Or—were meant to symbolize Both of the beasts also appear in the arms of families associated with the city's history34 The tincture of the elephant is ermines, a fur which can also be called counter-ermine The crown around the neck of the beaver is a duke's coronet
The crest shows a lion, which despite its tincture is supposed to be the English lion, as it is crowned with an imperial crown It is holding a Royal Tudor rose34
The shield was used in the logo of Morris Motors, which started in Oxford5
